Buddy Holly and the Crickets made some of the greatest rock & roll records of all time. It’s a remarkable fact that such classics as "That’ll Be The Day", "Peggy Sue", "Oh Boy", "Maybe Baby", "Rave On" and "Think It Over" were all recorded in a little less than twelve months during 1957-1958. On January 27, 1959 Buddy began a 3-week tour through the frozen midwest, but was killed along with Ritchie Yalens and the Big Bopper on February 3, 1959 in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa. He was just 22 years old. Such a short life. Such a giant legacy. Leaving his own great recordings and inspiring British groups of the Sixties like the Beatles, the Stones and the Hollies, Buddy Holly is one of the greatest in the history of rock & roll.
